Trek Prep Devotional - Tiffany Smith

Tiffany Smith wrote:

Lately I have had the opportunity to reflect on the purpose of Relief Society and the sisterhood that accompanies that.   As we have discussed the women's pull that happens during trek I cannot help but think about how it relates to Relief Society.  The song, As Sisters in Zion, originates from a poem that was written by a young girl that was part of the Willie handcart company.  She and her sister were together during the hard trek.  They both felt the power that comes from women supporting and working towards a common goal.  We have a great responsibility to carry on that tradition as we work with the sisters in our wards in stake to accomplish hard tasks.  As the young women work together on trek I hope that they can feel the spirit that comes from helping and encouraging each other.   

As sisters in Zion, we'll all pull together, 
The blessings of God on our labors we'll seek,
We'll build up his Kingdom with earnest endeavor, 
We'll comfort the weary, and strengthen the week. 
- Emily Hill Woodmansee
